A bizarre set of circumstances has landed a Connecticut woman in jail for a minor crime she committed 22 years ago.   Robin Hall, a married mother of two had confessed to sealing a pack of cigarettes from a Wal Mart in Florida back in 1991.  According to authorities she still owes the state of Florida $85 in court costs which she failed to pay at the time of the crime.  She was arrested last week  after she, her husband and two children disembarked the Disney Dream in Port Canaveral.

Police were waiting Hall when she got off the ship.  Authorities found her by checking the ship’s manifest for potential terrorists, and realized that she still had an outstanding arrest.

‘I take full responsibility for what I did,’ Hall told NBC Connecticut, but added: ‘I do not believe I deserve this.’

Since her 91 arrest Hall has straightened out her life, graduating from college with a degree in architecture.   The mom now works for the jet design firm Pratt & Whitney in Connecticut.

  1. Over $85? Really!? You know it cost them more in man power to wait and haul her to jail instead of just sending a bill. That’s ridiculous! There are more important things to be taking care of than a 20 year old “crime” that was apparently a one time lack of judgement when she was young and stupid.

  2. I would think the cost of arresting her would far outweigh the $85 she owed the state. Seems a bit dramatic. Why not just ask her to pay the fine or then be arrested? Bet those officers felt really great about getting that hardened criminal off the streets.

  3. give me a break! i pray they didnt cuff her in front of her children, or any children. There are SERIOUS laws being broken in all towns all the time and this is what they waste time on? $85! I think thats TERRIBLE!
